Federal criminal prosecutions proceed far differently than a state criminal matter. The pace, plea bargaining process and penalties are all much different than in state court. Federal criminal cases in New York City are prosecuted in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York by the US Attorney’s Office.
One thing in federal court that is radically different from New York state court is the sentencing process. Sentencing in federal court is determined by a rigid structure of factors, any one of which can drastically alter your sentence. While federal judges have more flexibility now than in past years, you still need a lawyer who knows every factor that may reduce your sentence.
